CHAN 2020: We are ready and motivated for Burkina Faso return leg – Shafiu Mumuni

Published on: 20 October 2019

Captain for the Black Stars B team, Shafiu Mumuni has assured that the team is ready and motivated for their second leg clash with Burkina Faso in the qualifiers to the 2020 CHAN.

Ghana is going into the match at a disadvantage after losing the first leg of the encounter at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium some weeks ago by a lone goal to nothing.

Speaking ahead of the team’s departure to Ouagadougou yesterday, Shafiu Mumuni stressed that all the players are booming with confidence and are sure of overturning the first leg result.

"We are very ready for them on Sunday; we want to qualify for the CHAN tournament so we will defeat them. We are sure of beating them at their home ground as they did here.

“My teammates are motivated and we have the belief that nothing is impossible”, the 2019 WAFU tournament golden boot winner said.

He further observed, “I can say that now we know ourselves better than we did when we met them last month. We will carry the same mind we used in playing the WAFU tournament into this game and that will give us victory”.

The match will be played later this afternoon at 15:30GMT in Ouagadougou.
